Welcome to! This is my "sister site" where we translate research done at The Risk Management Learning Center into layman language for any club, trade association, church, school, or public gathering! For more information call... Rich Woldt 608-712-7880

Here we take a train-the-trainer approach so you'll leave our sessions well equipped to carry your new found wisdom back home and into your community. We teach the same Risk Management methods and emergency response protocols taught to law enforcement, fire fighters, homeland security and emergency government professionals.  While our style is to entertain, our goal is to educate.

You'll learn ways to discourage or solve a burglary, robbery, bomb threat, antrawhat to do before, during and after natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Security Integration and Crime Prevention through Environmental Design to prepare neighborhoods for the next natural disaster. We teach Defendable Zones and Controllable Crime Scenes design to safeguard school children, parishioners, and those at a public form during the next terrorist attack.

We've learned much from Katrina and past terrorist attacks. For example, our future safety, security, and survival will depend on our ability to respond as a unit marching instep and in the same direction. A primary focus of this site is on promoting the "Incident Command System (ICS)" as a template and The National Incident Management System (NIMS) as a performance standard. We apply "Contingency Planning" fundamentals to the family unit and introduce "Contingency Management" as a guide for business leaders, school administrators, private security, and community groups. Workshops and presentations are designed to mobilize families and friends, neighbors and communities, businesses and associations, clubs and organizations, placing them as a unit on "The Road to Recovery."

I've used Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and Katrina to create three Incident Command System' templates. The first is focused on meeting the victim's "physiological" needs to include rebuilding the economic infrastructure lost during and after the hurricane. This template will benefit those in the financial industry, insurance industry, business community, and government agencies. The second ICS template is focused on the victims need to belong. The goal is to reunite victims or reconnect them to their past. This template is most appropriate for trade and business associations, veteran' organizations, clubs and societies. The third template rebuilds the victims self esteem and creates future opportunities for growth and success. This template should be used by colleges, universities, trade schools, and groups focused on career development.

When responding to victims after a disaster, first focus on their "Physiological" needs for medical attention, food, and shelter. Than reconnect them to their family, neighbors, church, veteran's organizations, business associations, social clubs, etc. Help them regain their "sense of belonging to to a stable, secure, and structured environment! Finally, help them rebuild a bright and promising future! For more information call... Rich Woldt 608-712-7880


The Road to Recovery

Finally - Point to the Future

Next -Reconnect Victims with Their Past!

First - Rebuild The  Economy


Our Pyramide "Road to Recovery" is built on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs! First banks, credit unions, insurance companies, and the business community focus on cleaning up and rebuiling the economic infrastructure, than groups and associations reconnect victims whith their past, and finally schools and universities recreate a promising future for the victims and their extended families throughout the region!

Our "Road to Recovery" is built on Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs. Maslow's theory contends that when disasters strike, victims first focus on their "physiological" need for food, shelter, safety, and a stable economy on which to rebuild their future . Next, they look for a place to belong or reconnect with their past. Finally, they need to have a bright and promising future. Our "Pyramid - Road to Recovery" uses the Incident Command System (ICS) as a template and The National Incident Management Sytem (NIMS) as an emergency response performance standard to systematically address each level of needs. A major benefit of of this approach is it can be used sequentially (Physiological needs first, than Belongingness, and finally Self Esteem/Self Actualiztion) or sequentially. You will note that front-line Incident Commanders will manage the incident sequentially while Operation's Chiefs will deploy assets from the staging area either sequentially when in strike mode or simultaniously when conducting a mission.
Step #1: When disaster strikes, financial institutions (banks, credit unions, investment specialists) the insurance industry, and the business community focus on clean up, reclamation, and stabilizing the economic infra crews to stabilize the environment, followed by reconstruction crews to build shelters and food services to feed the refugees. Banks, credit unions, insurance companies, trade unions, and the business community focus on indemnifying victims and rebuilding the economy.
Step #2 The incident command at the belongingness level reconnects victims with their past and focuses on recreating a sense of social well-being. At this level, social groups, business associations, leagues, chapters, churches, organizations, affiliations, clubs, and societies known to have played an instrumental role in the victim's past put their arms around the victims to let them know they belong. Our road to recovery model uses the US military, specifically veteran's organizations such as the Veteran's of Foreign Wars (VFW) and business associations such as the American Society of Industrial Security International (ASIS International) as the model for the incident command responding to needs at this level. 
Finally, schools, colleges, universities, trade schools and all forms of continuing education programs focus on the victim's self esteem and the need to reach that level of self actualization that defines success within the victim's country and culture.

To my friends and mentors: September 2005 marked my 42nd year of pounding the podium to motivate and spread Risk Management (RM) wisdom around the world. I've been richly blessed with a career that's taken me to most cities in the US and countries in the free world. I've been blessed to have worked with so many good friends and professional RM mentors. Now, thanks to the internet, we're able to keep in touch, reach out, and prepare a world that's threatened by natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and an increasingly violent society. It's my sincere hope that this site will provide you with skills you'll need to manage new risks, face new challenges, accept new responsibilities, and move out with courage to prepare, protect, and defend your homeland.         Rich Woldt
